Official: Man United announce Jadon Sancho deal as Dortmund express dissatisfaction with fee

Premier League giants Manchester United have, on Thursday, confirmed that a deal has been struck with Borussia Dortmund for the signing of Jadon Sancho.

Reds’ signal of intent

For the 3rd year straight, the opening weeks of the summer transfer window have centred heavily around the future of English international Sancho.

The 21-year-old, who has thus far struggled for game-time at Euro 2020, is fresh off the back of another scintillating campaign in the Bundesliga.

All told, in 38 appearances across all competitions, Sancho racked up 16 goals, to go along with a hefty 20 assists.

And such production, in turn, has inevitably seen attentions piqued back in his home country. In the past, a whole host of Premier League clubs have been credited with an interest in Sancho’s signature.

It was one in particular, though, who established themselves as outright frontrunners to actually strike a deal over the course of the last 12 months.

The outfit in question? Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is evidently on the lookout for reinforcements out wide at Old Trafford, with Sancho, boasting not only immense talent but also massive room for growth, having emerged as the Red Devils’ understandable no.1 target.

And, as outlined above, on Thursday, the prolonged saga surrounding Sancho and United has finally reached its conclusion.

Taking to social media a short time ago, the English heavyweights confirmed that a deal has been struck with Borussia Dortmund, for the explosive wide-man to make the move to the Theatre of Dreams upon the completion of the European Championships:

‘Not happy’

Whilst those in a position of power on the red half of Manchester rejoice, though, their counterparts at Signal Iduna Park have seemingly been left altogether disappointed.

Speaking after Sancho’s imminent departure from Germany was made official, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted that both he and the club ‘are not happy’ about the transfer fee agreed upon with United:
